Overview

About the property

3 bdrm, 1 bath, fully eqpt kitchen, fenced yard w/covered patio & barbeque.

Our charming, sunny, and comfortable house is less than three blocks from the Deschutes River and riverside parks, and a short walk to the amazing and wonderful variety of restaurants, taverns, grocery stores and shops on Galveston and Newport. It's also an easy walk to downtown Bend, the amphitheater, and the Old Mill District, and just a 30 minute drive to Mt. Bachelor, yet it's on a quiet, leafy street with beautiful houses and friendly neighbors. It really is a perfect location, whatever your reason for visiting Bend.

We just bought the house and painted the entire inside, put down new floors and carpets, and added new furnishings. The living room is spacious, with two big couches (one a fold-out queen bed), comfortable chairs, and a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable TV and Wi-Fi, a DVD player, and DVDs for adults and kids and some great books for vacation reading. The kitchen is large and fully stocked with dishes and utensils, and has a beautiful oak dining table that seats six, and has two leaves to add if you need even more room at the table.

Two bedrooms have comfortable queen beds (one with a Tempur-pedic mattress), the third has a beautiful and comfortable wood bunk bed, and all have high quality linens and pillows.

The back yard is completely fenced, the covered back patio has a new gas barbecue, and there's even a basketball backboard with a new net and a basketball.

There's a full size washer and dryer inside.

About Michele

We live in Boulder Creek, CA, near Santa Cruz, deep in the redwood forests. We started visiting Bend in 2008 when our son and his wife moved here. Since then, most of our daughter-in-law's family has moved to Bend, and we've visited many times. With every visit, in different seasons, we saw more of the town and the area, and the more we experienced, the more we loved it. We love the sunny weather, the gorgeous river flowing through town, the constant striking views of the snow-capped mountains, the beautiful old houses, the friendly people, and the abundance of good food, drink, and entertainment.

Each time we visited, our kids urged us to buy a house. We looked at a lot of houses in a lot of neighborhoods, but didn't quite get to the point of doing it. But then we got the news that a grandchild was on the way, and we finally bought this house.

Michele purchased this house in 2013

Why Michele chose Bend

Our son and his extended family all live on the Westside, in the River West neighborhood. Because this also happens to be our favorite neighborhood in Bend, this is where we wanted to buy, and we were lucky to find this home. In addition to being walking distance from our family, it's walking distance from all of the stores, restaurants, and bars on Galveston and Newport, downtown, and the river and Drake Park, and it's on a lovely, quiet, tree-lined, street, with friendly neighbors. It couldn't be better.

Always a pleasure

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Federal house. It's always a great stay. It's always perfect for me and my family. This weekend was perfect weather for baseball. The only down fall was the house was really hot even with the windows and fan going.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you were uncomfortable. Ordinarily keeping the house closed up during the day and then opening all the windows in the evening and using the fans works very well to keep the house cool. I think it was unseasonably hot when you were in Bend.

Great Location, Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the rental justice. It is really comfortable and cute. We traveled with a family and had plenty of room for everyone. The fenced yard was great- we let the kids play and pick up pine cones while we enjoyed the back patio. The location is perfect, just a few blocks from a lot of restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend!

Bend has pretty much every outdoor activity you can think of that doesn't involve an ocean, is beautiful in every season, AND has tons of great restaurants, shopping, art, and music, and, of course, lots of fun breweries and bars.
